Carpe Diem No. 873 Deeper into the North


North wind without snow
Brown leaves brushing against legs
The tavern’s dim lights

Up in the high North
Fallen soldiers, fallen trees
Weeping at the fire


Snow is arriving
Covering beauty and fail
Birds keep silent now

  1. The eerie stillness after a forest fire. Very well written!
